# Reference Value Found by a Formula as the Row Number of a Column

#### McLethalson

I have a sheet with many positive and negative values. I have a formula =COUNTIF(C2:C200,">0") to tell me how many of these values are positive. I have sorted these values greatest to least, and I would like to add together only the positive numbers. Currently, there are 40 positive numbers. Is there a way to make the formula only look at rows C2:C41? Can I automate the cell number based on a value found by a formula? Cell D2 has the COUNTIF formula, is there something like C(D2) to define the row number?

### Excel Facts

When did Power Query debut in Excel?
Although it was an add-in in Excel 2010 & Excel 2013, Power Query became a part of Excel in 2016, in Data, Get & Transform Data.

Why not just use =SUMIF(C2:C200,">0")
